Carrot Raisin and Walnut Cookies Recipe

Last month I was visiting with my sister and she gave me a bag full of her homemade carrot and walnut cookies along with the recipe. Today, I wanted to share that recipe with all of you because these cookies are easy to make and taste delicious!

Carrot and Walnut Cookies Recipe

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup carrots, grated
1/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped
1/2 cup raisins

In a large mixing bowl combine together the all purpose flour, ground cinnamon, baking soda and the salt. In another large mixing bowl beat together the brown sugar and butter until well blended. Beat in the large egg and the vanilla extract. Using a large mixing spoon and stir in the grated carrots, chopped walnuts and the raisins by hand until all ingredients are well blended together.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Lightly spray your baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray or grease them up with a little butter. Drop cookie dough onto the baking sheets leaving 3" of space between them. They will expand a little bit during the baking process. Place baking sheet into the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cookies are done. Remove and let cookies cool before serving.
